Trend Micro, a global leader in cybersecurity solutions, has announced the appointment of Conner Smith as its new Head of Partnerships and Alliances for the Sub-Saharan Africa region. Smith is responsible for leading the company’s Channel Sales and Alliance strategy across the continent.
Trend Micro has experienced exceptional growth in its channel in the region over the last year. An acceleration that has, in part, been fuelled by extensive executive focus as well as its programmatic approach to delivering a reward and certification driven channel programme that enables partners to fast track channel enablement and heighten customer experience.
“Our channel remains the primary means by which we engage with our customers across Sub-Saharan Africa. It is a critical part of our business, and we are delighted to welcome Conner. She is a proven channel executive with a reputation for developing and nurturing key accounts and alliance partnerships to the Trend Micro team,” said Indi Siriniwasa, Vice President Sub-Saharan Africa at Trend Micro. “Conner not only brings an impressive list of achievements to the role but also extensive knowledge of the channel outside of South Africa. We believe she will assist us in taking our channel programme and partnerships to a new level.”Click below to share this article
